Belgrave Lake Park Cottage: A safe and stimulating space for children and their carers to meet with lots of resources to enhance both physical and social development.

The Belgrave Lake Park Cottage was started over 30 years ago by a small group of passionate volunteers who renovated the old ground-keeper’s cottage in the caravan park. Thanks to their hard work and the continuing efforts of many years of volunteers the Cottage continues to provide a fun and convenient place for kids to play.


Belgrave Lake Park Cottage Playgroup is open to all local residents. So if you are a new parent, or have just moved into the area and have a child/children under 6 years of age, you are more than welcome to join.


Our Playgroup sessions do not have a ‘leader’ or structured activities unless a parent/ carer within that time slot wishes to do so. Please contact the Yarra Ranges Council if you would like a ‘Supported’ Playgroup with a paid staff member. 


The Cottage is also an affordable place to host children’s parties; Birthdays, Christenings, Naming Parties, Baby Showers, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs etc. with plenty of car parking, pram and wheelchair access, undercover and outdoor space and located right next to Belgrave Lake Park.



Belgrave Lake Park Cottage is run by a volunteer committee and is a not-for-profit organization. All our members are encouraged to volunteer to help out with our fundraising and community events, contribute to small projects or become committee members. A member of each session time must attend the monthly committee meetings so we can hear feedback from each group and so they can pass on any messages back to their group.

We are proud to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people as the traditional custodians of these lands and waters
